    A long time ago I had one (from 1957) for several years. It was my first military vehicle and I loved it.

    In no particular order:
    It is very sturdy and is overengineered.
    It is rather slow, maximum speed is somewhere between 70 and 80 kilometers/hour but closer to 70 than to 80 I think.
    Therefore a different and relaxing experience on the motorway. No one to overtake.
    It doesn't offer great visibility around you.
    The windscreen can be folded down, the doors can be lifted out and the soft top can be removed, one big fun convertible!
    It is surprisingly good off-road.
    I like the looks of it (still do).
    I found the seats comfortable for what they are.
    Not many Dutch designed and built vehicles around.
    Lots of room in the back and the planks can be arranged to give a completely flat cargo bed.
    Doesn't have good fuel economy.

    Go for it!

    Hi Mick,

    Had a look and found 4 for sale here in the Netherlands.
    These two sites are good sites to keep an eye on.

    Next question.
    has anyone here imported one from Holland to uk? How easy and ballpark how much cost is involved. Can I just drive one back and then register it once in uk? What would I need to set in place to get it across the channel? Any advice on getting it registered?
    cheers

    That depends on what you can arrange with the seller. The best option would be to trailer it back to the UK, since the seller has to turn the registration plates in as proof the vehicle has been exported. You can get Dutch export plates, but I don't know if those are valid in the UK (and Belgium or France if you choose that route). You can insure export plates though.

    If the seller cooperates you could drive it back on the Dutch registration and under the seller's insurance and then send the registration plates back to the seller once you reached home, but that implies a great deal of trust.

    I would look around in the UK first.
